I met my latest student, Jo, on Twitter - it turns out she lives not far from me at all, and just happened to be looking for a local lampwork glass beadmaking tutor! The power of social media is quite something!
Jo and I spent a really enjoyable session in the Let Fire Inspire workshop on Wednesday, working through a progressive variety of decorative techniques. It was great fun! Thanks to being bang in the middle of Artwave Festival the workshop was looking its best - it's been a very busy time, but the extra level of tidiness, thanks to Artwave, has been a big help!
Jo is a fabulous craftsperson already - she makes gorgeous handmade jewellery and gifts, including beautiful silver and enamel pieces, and fused glass items.

Here's what Jo got up to at the torch flame:
Thank you for having me. Absolutely loved it and want to come again.!!
Thanks for the photos...I shall be posting later.
